Iowa Council of Teachers of English


Time to practice what you preach! Put your mind in motion and your pen to the page.


Writing for the Iowa Council of Teachers of English:

  • promotes the art of writing
  • connects English teaching professionals
  • builds the ICTE community of learning

Every Tuesday will we post writings from teachers across the state of Iowa.

We want to hear from the experts in our own organization! ICTE is looking for teachers who would be willing to write for our website. We are looking for pieces 200-600 words in length, reflecting on classroom experiences, teaching strategies, and/or life in the classroom. We want Iowa English teachers to share their expertise and struggles with each other! We are hoping for a variety of writing styles and points of view.

We want to fill our website with your writings. The ICTE editorial board knows how busy you are, so feel free to comb through previous writings from your blog, teacher website, or academic past. We want to publish your reflections, book reviews, commentaries, anecdotes, strategies, video essays, creative writings, and responses to what you’re reading (professional or personal readings).

Contact Missy Springsteen-Haupt at [email protected] if you have a piece you’d like to submit, or if there’s a topic you’re dying to read about.
